The book is a dangerously unstable object :: It is the world :: It is not the world :: It is the world bending :: It is a constant movement-between :: The structure of the book mirrors :: Mirrors us :: Mirrors our time ::::

The book is a remarkable technology :: It is a shimmering substance :: It is a noise of the hands & thought :: The book is perhaps now a dead thing :: In the hands of the dead :: So be it :: We remain in the dark :: With these books :: The original autonomous window technology that is us looking through :: At :: In :: Against :: With care :: The book returns our labor to us ::::

The book stains the fingers like static :: You can always open it further ::::
